Peony Anniversary

Happy Friday!
Here we are heading into a holiday weekend. I hope yours will include lots of good old fashioned All American fun. We'll be celebrating with family but I'll have a post for you on Monday suited to the occasion!
Today I have an anniversary card for you.
The stamped image is called Jumbo Peony by Stampendous. Isn't it gorgeous? The sentiment is from Hero Arts (Occasions).
My card is a 5.25 x 10.5inch piece of River Rock. I cut a 5 inch square of Basic Black and punched one edge with my Martha Stewart Lace Edge punch then adhered that to the face of the card. The flower is stamped with River Rock on Neenah Baronial Ivory and placed next with a strip of Basic Black and a narrower strip of Neenah Baronial Ivory added to the bottom edge just above the lace edge. The ribbon was wrapped around the black and ivory strip before it was adhered to the card. For the ribbon flower, I used black thread and needle to cinch together a small piece of ribbon into a rosette and then added the half pearl to the center once I'd tied it off. The sentiment was stamped with Basic Black and three more half pearls along the top left corner finish it off.

Thanks for visiting today! Enjoy your holiday weekend!
